Are former employees eligible?
Are people doing a recruitment crusade through an entire city eligible with demo games?

As long as your posts take the proper format, demo games are eligible.

Is solo play eligible and should it be inside the original setting of the Solar Calendar?

Solo Play: No. I know this is unfair to people who don't know any other players. We are looking for actual game reports rather than mental exercises against ones self.
Solar Calendar: No, it does not have to be in the Solar Calendar.

Here's a question: do :IO games count? 'Cause we're gonna be playing/playtesting it a bunch in the coming weeks.

Also, this contest rules!

Does anyone else think its funny that the battle report section has died until June so that way they can get an extra couple of points for the contest? lol

We've been averaging 2.6 reports per month since the beginning of the year. So I'd call this a normal lull. The real proof will be on June 1st.

Ah that explains that then, I've been here since mid-may and I didn't think I saw much more than that. But I have a game scheduled for over the weekend so hopefully we are able to play several games to get a decent lead. Lol

A little over halfway through the month and we're at seven reports. Right now Ced23Ric and Red_Robot are tied for the lead.

I should have at least two, if not four more coming. One might even be IO.

I have a demo report and a full battle report from Monday the 15th still in the pipe, just have to weed through the photos for the best pictures.

And of course...more to come, though I'm not going to reveal my hand on just how many. :twisted:

I'm sporting, but I'm not stupid. Well okay, it depends who ya ask....

I WANT THOSE BRICKS!!
